“Motel Bamako” takes you on a trip through Inna Modja’s childhood roots: Bamako’s rail Band and the rousing, intoxicating electro-underground vibrations. Inna Modja writes and sings about meeting people, about joys and sorrows, about the war in his native country, Mali. Prestigious artists have contributed to this project: Stephen Budd, Oxmo Puccino, Cheick Tidiane Seck. This third album is more avant-garde, with Afro-Electro sonorities. On stage, it’s an energetic whirl of desert blues and sensuality.
Soirée Région Ile-De-France
This year, the Ile-de-France region is taking you on a trip! A trip into psychedelic ethno pop with In The Canopy, into afrofuturism with a hint of Rumba with Pierre Kwenders, into afroelectro with Inna Modja and into Yemeni folk’n’beat with A-WA. The Ile-de-France region will make you spend the evening between Paris, Mali, Israel, Yemen and Canada. And all this without even a plane ticket. In The Canopy is part of the 2015 RIF Itinérances selection (confederation of departmental networks for contemporary/amplified music venues in Ile-de-France).
